A reminder as the seasons bring us cooler weather, that Peace follows the Fairfax school district snow/emergency schedule. If Fairfax schools are delayed or closed, the church office will be delayed or closed. https://www.fcps.edu/alerts


Adult Forum on Sunday Mornings at 9:15 am

Join Jon Nerdig and Paul Routson as they lead a six week discussion of “Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time” by Marcus Borg. Each week we will discuss one of the 6 chapters. In the book, Borg discusses his personal journey of discovery exploring recent biblical scholarship on the life of Jesus. Through the journey, he develops a stronger faith that welcomes critical thinking and historical scholarship rather than oppressing it. He offers a vision of the Christian life rooted in spiritual challenge,  compassion, and community. We hope you will join us for a lively and thoughtful discussion!

Casserole Drive for Bailey’s Shelter
Peace is helping to provide meals for Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter residents at risk of hypothermia. Last winter, more than a thousand individuals in Fairfax County benefited from hypothermia prevention programs; a warm place to sleep and a good meal to eat are integral parts of the program. We will be providing food for residents for the week of March 10-17, 2019.
Ways to help:
  • Provide a casserole to feed 10-12 people.  Pans with instructions provided. (We have enough folks signed up to provide casseroles!!) Casserole deadline is March 3rd.
  • Sign up to help serve the meal on Event Sign up at sharingpeace.org. We need 3 people to help serve each night of the week that we’re providing meals.
  • Donate a grocery store gift card to help us cover the costs of salad and dessert.
Contact Nadia with any questions. Thanks again!

Want to bake bread during Lent?

We’re going to have homemade bread for communion during Lent (March 10 through April 18).  We’re looking for six bakers.  We would provide the recipe (not a hard or complicated one) and a hands on class in advance for anyone who needs it.  This class will be given on Saturday, February 23 and will take approximately 3 hours.
If you want to volunteer to bake or simply want to learn how to bake bread please contact the office.
